Storyline

A PR specialist refuses to market a car called a "Howard" - a colossal error that loses him a billion dollars and makes him a national joke. He loses his hair, shaves his beard, takes a new name, and moves to Martha's Vineyard. Jump ten years: "Rolly" is a popular local whose sangfroid evaporates when the Howard's inventor moves to the island. Rolly, his old self unrecognizable, hatches a plan to rid the island of his nemesis; he also decides to woo the billionaire's wife. Fellatio, a former girlfriend, a woman who's lost weight, her boyfriend, the band Chicago, a menacing Chechen, a bus load of ill children, and a pair of ne'er-do-wells with experience with explosives figure in the story.

Trivia

The three co-writers of this TV movie--partners Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer-- all wrote for Seinfeld (1989), then later co-directed the 2004 film EuroTrip (2004). They became infamous for the way they decided on who should get the solo directing credit on that movie--by drawing the name from the hat. See more »

Goofs

In the restaurant booth when Rolly presses his friend for the construction job, the key for the wallbox juke selector can be seen sticking out the right side. It's unlikely the key would be left in it normally. See more »

Highly entertaining and funny as I expected.
19 August 2013 | by (Ferizaj (Kosovo)) – See all my reviews

Clear History is like an extended episode of L.D.'s Curb Your Enthusiasm, it has the same spirit, the same jokes, but yet it works. How could this be ? I think it's all thanks to a brilliant vision of a genius of comedy, Larry David.

  • Clear History centers on Nathan Flomm (L.D.), a marketing executive,


who works for and is also a partner with Will Haney (Jon Hamm); they're working on an idea of a revolutionary electric car, but when the name of the car becomes an issue for Nathan, they part their ways. Nathan regrets it and wants to get back on the business, but Will refuses him. Nathan, in order to avoid the humiliation of having missed out on a hugely successful business, assumes a new identity on Martha's Vineyard. One day (after 10 years) a well known face shows up in town (Will Haney), and leaves Nathan no option but to plot revenge.

  • Any "Curb Your Enthusiasm" fan won't be disappointed with what "Clear


History" has to offers, and anybody else who watches the movie will enjoy it too, cuz the movie is funny, the jokes hit the mark, the story is simple (it's easy to follow it), the ensemble cast dances with L.D's tune and also the soundtrack (mostly supplied by Chicago's discography) make it a "Clear Triumph". * Now, I think, it's time for the next season of "Curb..." !!!
